Pulsar: A Web 3.0 MMO Real Time Strategy Play To Own Game

Pulsar: A Web 3.0 MMO Real Time Strategy Play To Own Game

In today’s gaming news, we introduce an upcoming, promising free-to-play sci-fi MMO Real Time Strategy blockchain game, Pulsar. This upcoming “play to own NFT game” will entertain hundreds and thousands of players around the world, where players will mine, build, and conquer. It is arguably the first Web3 RTS game with a lot to offer in terms of entertainment, graphics, gameplay, and earning opportunities. So, gamers, rally around and get ready to welcome the Starcraft of Web3 blockchain gaming, Pulsar.

The game offers spectacular gameplay with futuristic art concepts. The game’s biomes each have their own distinct characteristics and breathtaking immersive environments. Moreover, the game gives off AAA vibes and is powered by the Unreal Engine and Avalanche Subnet. It offers some of the crispiest, most crystal clear, vibrant, and cleanest graphics that a blockchain game has yet to offer. The only other blockchain game next to Pulsar that promises supergraphics in the sci-fi genre is Ascenders.

The Lore

With billions of stars and galaxies in deep space, we are surely not alone. There must be civilizations or empires out there that are more advanced in technology, intelligence, and resources. It all began when Earth satellites in deep space received signals — a sound wave with a frequency that had never been heard before. The frequency was named Beacon 0, and the source was Pulsar.

In search of the origin, the believers went from planet to planet, established colonies, and extracted resources to continue penetrating into deeper space. Now, the believers have reached the last planet just before the Pulsar System, and in between are millions of light years of distance. So, the explorers decided to populate W12R as it is the last planetary outpost before the start of the Pulsar System. This makes the W12R an important outpost, and the battle to gain control over it has just started.

Pulsar is Free-to-Play

The team behind Pulsar is considerate towards players as well as a player-driven economy. The developers have made this game free to play, requiring no initial investment to begin playing. Moreover, the game also lets you play the game even without connecting your digital wallets. You don’t need to figure out wallet configuration, mint NFTs, or any other geeky crypto knowledge to excel in this game. Just download the game and start playing it. Pulsar welcomes Web2 and Web3 gamers alike.

Pulsar Game Modes

The game has three game modes as of yet:

  • PvE: Single and Co-op (25th December 2022)
  • PvE: Story Mode in the first quarter of 2023.
  • PvP: No official date yet

The game will let players choose different occupations or specializations.

  • Miners will harvest raw resources on the land.
  • The builder will work in the building and craft items.
  • Fighters will ensure the defense of lands and resources.

Play-to-Own Mechanism in Pulsar

Pulsar offers players complete ownership of every in-game item they possess. Players will own everything from units to buildings, land and crafts, NFTs, and resources.

NFTs are upgradeable and will help players in combat battles and production capabilities. This will also increase the value of the NFTs in the marketplace.

Land in Pulsar

Land mining is also available, which will monetize the player’s assets. The land will also let players mine NFTs and even lend their land to other players. So, what about land?

Pulsar Land

There are four types of lands, or biomes, in the game, and each biome has unique attributes attached to it. Each land has a minimum or maximum of $PLSR in it, depending on the size of the land. Moreover, a land’s size also determines the number of motherships and units that it can host. The land also has resources in it ranging from common to uncommon to rare. These resources will be at the disposal of all players; however, the land owner will charge a tax from players that extract resources.

The Building Refinery

The NFTs from the land will need to head to the refinery building, where Genesis Pulsar Refinery will convert raw Pulsar to $PLSR tokens. Resource Refinery, on the other hand, will convert raw resources into on-chain resource tokens.

Pulsar Tokenomics

$PLSR is the primary in-game currency that the players can also mine. The process involves getting raw Pulsars from the land and getting them refined into $PLSR.

$GAS is another on-chain token that will help players craft NFTs and also be used in trade.

Our Take On Pulsar

The game holds a lot of potential and shows promise, especially on the fun and graphics sides, which are much more appealing. The in-game economy is the real challenge that every Web3 game faces, especially during the crypto winter. However, Pulsar might just be the game that eventually comes up with an innovation where the in-game economy thrives into a robust ecosystem.

Square Enix financial report and projection of blockchain technology. NCSoft invests in Mysten Labs to develop Web3 gaming infrastructure. FIFA takes the leap toward blockchain games. Mythical Games cuts down on its staff. Crypto is one of the few industries in this world that faces regular crises and gets jolted every now and then. This week, we saw the bankruptcy of one of the most prominent players in the crypto industry, FTX. However, we also saw that cryptocurrencies have made rebounds this week, just as they did during previous recessions. So, the crypto industry is still holding on and avoiding washouts, meaning they are only getting stronger. Bitcoin stands tall as a peer-to-peer electronic transaction without any financial intermediation. And Ethereum remains the standout protocol to build decentralized applications. We will identify the trend in crypto and blockchain gaming in the weeks to come after FTX’s bankruptcy. However, the previous week saw Microsoft investing in Korean blockchain gaming company WeMade, the game developer behind the popular MMO game series Mir. WeMade’s newest venture is in a blockchain company called Wemix 3.0. The platform will deploy a blockchain network and allow cryptocurrency transactions to be verified and recorded on the blockchain. Moreover, the company also has an NFT auction site that allows NFTs and DAOs. Besides, WeMade's newest title, Mir4, is arguably the world’s first AAA blockbuster blockchain game. It is not known how much Microsoft invested in the $46 million investment round. In other news, Square Enix's financial results show an overall revenue fall despite Final Fantasy 14’s rise in sales. However, the report shows Square Enix’s focus on the new domain of blockchain, with blockchain games and entertainment as its medium-term strategy. The company also unveiled its first NFT IP, Symbiogenesis, launching its first sale of NFT collectibles. The report also shared further plans with Shi-San-Sei Million Arthur NFTs, investments in the Bitcoin platform Zebedee, investments in Blocklords, Cross The Ages, Animoca Brands, and the Sandbox. The blockchain gaming industry continues to thrive and attract investments, especially from Asian companies. NCSoft, South Korea’s gaming giant, invested $15 million in Mysten Labs as part of the previously announced $300 million funding round. Mysten Labs' ongoing project is Layer 1 blockchain development, which will serve as infrastructure for Web3 games. The company emerged in 2021 and launched its first project, Sui, a decentralized proof-of-stake blockchain. Its recent $300 million in fundraising was led by FTX Ventures. Other notable participants were Jump Crypto, Apollo, Sino Global, Dentsu Ventures, and Coinbase Ventures. Finally, FIFA's parting ways with EA led to its entry into the blockchain gaming space for the very first time. The organization will start with four Web 3.0 games that will coincide with the FIFA World Cup 2022. The first game among the lot is AI League: FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Edition. The developer behind the game is Altered State Machine. The game is a 4-on-4 casual football game where AI will compete and players will have input in between. Furthermore, AI-controlled players will earn four distinct collectibles. FIFA World Cup 2022 is the second game in the upland metaverse. This project is a collaboration between FIFA and Upland. Upland is a blockchain-based metaverse with virtual land assets that provide full ownership to players. The third game on Phygtl is the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022. Phygtl is a mobile application for fan engagement. The fourth and final FIFA game on the blockchain is Matchday Challenge: FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Edition. It is a social prediction game based on football cards. It will be interesting to see how football game fans around the world take FIFA’s new ventures in Web3 gaming. Finally, we have Mythical Games, a blockchain game developer, going after cost-cutting, leading to the laying off of 10% of its employees. The company is valued at more than $270 million in venture capital; previously, it was valued at $1.25 billion. The reason given by the company behind the recent firing was the economic downturn. The company’s leading project in blockchain gaming is Blankos Block Party, which is suffering from a low daily active user count, leading to difficulty finding games for online players.
